Enough

The final scenes 
in "Chocolat" roll through
frame by frame
enticing me with
desire for the same happy
ending, but we are different 
names in a different script.

My story doesn't 
play out the same, or
end with a chance
to offer a glass of
soda to the man 
who needed to 
destroy.

This story doesn't end 
with a soft look 
across a dish of ice cream ~
unspoken, but
grateful ackowledgement
of grace received and
mercy given. 

But He asks me, "Am I enough?" 
 "Yes. You are. Enough. 
Always enough," I spirit groan, 
conceding.

If He isn't enough, any scene 
I could imagine to assuage this
grief wouldn't be enough,
either.
